Tbero are poorer men and men of moder

that it is the safest. On tho other hand
there are rich people who rarely pay until
almost forced to do so. There are many

—lt is a matter of cariosity to some peo
ple how a bank can become obliged to
close its doors' while it is financially sound
as many are doing at present. It happens
in this way: In the course of business a
bank receives 1100,000 in deposits. To
make the necessary profits to pay the in
terest to depositors, this money must be
lent out, for which the bank receives the
note of the borrower and the interest on
the same. Now, after say 980,000 had been
so lent out, depositors get uneasy and be
gin a "run" on the bank. It is impossible
to collect the notes until they are doe, and
when the bank's surplus cash is gone it
must borrow or close. The bank may be
sound and able to pay every dollar it owes,
but if all the depositors call for their mon
ey at once, the soundest bank must yield,
unless the stockholders have enough loose
cash to pay tho deposits.— Penntrylvania
